The notion of context appears in computer science, as well as in several other disciplines, in various forms. In
this paper, we present a general framework for representing the notion of context in information modeling. First,
we define a context as a set of objects, within which each object has a set of names and possibly a reference:
the reference of the object is another context which "hides" detailed information about the object. Then, we
